Import old GED 5.0 file from family tree maker to new version

This is a quick hotfix for this. If you exported your old family tree maker file to a GED file version 5.0, you can't open it again in newer versions. But it's actually saved in 5.3, which is pretty similar to 5.5. Simply open the GED file in notepad, find the line which specifies the version (5.3), rename it to 5.5, save, and open it in family tree maker 2011 or whatever you are running ;)

PS... Scrapbook elements gets lost in the GED format..

Remove whitelist in NX7400 bios

Yes, it's possible! As well as you will get SLIC tables. This should remove any 104 or 105 errors on NX7400. There is also available bioses for other HP models for this...

First of all, I take no responsibility in case you brick/ruin your bios :P

Now to it...
1.) Download this toolkit to make a bootable USB key with rompaq which is the flashing tool. Follow the readme, and everything will start automaticly when booting up...
2.) Boot up with this, make a backup of your current bios. If you have a nx7400 you will get a file named: 68YGU.BAK
3.) Download your new bios from here (NX7300/NX7400).
4.) Open the file, and extract the .bin file to the usb key, and rename it to 68YGU.BIN.
5.) Reboot, and chose to upgrade bios.
6.) You are done :-)

For more info, and complete list of bios'es available check here.

Update 30. March 2012:
Installed a newest generation Intel 5300 wifi card which handles up to 450mbps without a problem on my hp nx7400. As this card has three antenna plugs, and the nx7400 only contains two I just connected wire 1 to connector 1, and wire 2 to connector 2 (they are marked on the wifi card) and let the connector 3 stay unconnected. Great signal as is to my old router. You can buy extra cables on ebay for a couple of dollars if you want.

The wifi card I installed is the following: INTEL WLAN 5300 533AN_MMWG. This is the FULL HEIGHT version.
